St Giles Hospice launches fundraising summer raffle

A fundraising summer raffle is raising money for St Giles Hospice.

The Whittington-based charity will be giving away a top price of either £8,000 or a brand new Ford Ka.

There will also be items such as a holiday to the Canaries and a home entertainment system up for grabs.

The fundraising raffles take place each year and former winner Jane Johnson, from Barton-under-Needwood, walked away with the £8,000 jackpot in the 2014 winter competition.

“It was so exciting when I received the news.” She said. “You always hear about other people winning and never expect it to happen to you so it was just fabulous.

“St Giles Hospice is a cause that is dear to the heart because we’ve had a number of friends who’ve benefited from their care.”

The charity revealed that the raffles raise more than £1million each year, funding care for one in eight of the patients it cares for.

Helen Relihan, head of fundraising for St Giles Hospice, said: “We are always incredibly grateful to those who support our work and we would like to wish anyone who buys a ticket in this year’s summer raffle the best of luck.”

The draw will take place on July 31. Tickets can be purchased for St Giles shops or online at www.stgileshospice.com/raffle.
